If after a summer walk through the forest you havepreserved a large number of cones, they can make a variety of crafts. For example, a New Year tree, which will be an alternative to natural spruce. For work you will need materials and tools:
- fir cones;
- a filler, for example, a sintepon;
- silver paint;
- adhesive PVA and double-sided and paint tape;
- A stapler;
- garland and tinsel for decoration.
The basis for such a Christmas tree should be made especiallystrong and broad - bumps are quite heavy material and the substrate must withstand them. For a cardboard base, you need to make a cone and fix it with an adhesive tape and a stapler. Aligning the bottom of the cone, you need to circle it and cut a circle. In the cone, fill the filler so that the base becomes heavier, from the bottom, close the base around and fix it with paint tape. Before you start sticking bumps, you need to calibrate them - split large, medium and small. Then we begin to glue the cones onto the base on a double-sided scotch. The first tier is made from below by the largest cones, we glue them tightly to each other. On the next tier we take the cones finer and place them in a staggered order to close the gaps. We continue to work this way until the Christmas tree is fully formed. The most creative stage of creating a Christmas tree is decorating. Here you can include all your imagination. You can choose to decorate silver paint, garland and tinsel, like me, make colorful or one-color bows, glue beads, choose ready-made small toys. The only thing I can advise is not to choose too large objects of decor, tk. they will look cumbersome.
